A full-stack project to search and rate movies using data from The Movie Database. I created it as a take-home challenge for YearOne, a community I joined as a recent Front-End graduate of Turing School of Software and Design.

After solidifying my knowledge of front-end development over the last year, I viewed this challenge as an opportunity to expand my full-stack skills, explore a new language (Go), DevOps concepts, and tools.

ReRent seeks to empower busy students by automating the creation, booking, and maintenance of Airbnb listings. It allows them to earn money on their homes while away on travels. I helped choose and implement a Front-End technology stack to ensure a proper balance between a long-term foundation and quick short-term development. At the core is NextJS for the benefits of server-side rendering, static site generation, and search engine optimization. The Apollo GraphQL platform for state management on the Front-end and a proxy-server to bring together different micro-services. The UI uses TailwindCSS + Emotion for its straightforward use and documentation, speeding up development.
